Man City vs PSG LIVE: Latest Champions League updates


Riyad Mahrez fires Manchester City in front

Manchester City are hosting Paris Saint-Germain tonight aiming to finish off the tie and reach the Champions League final for the first time in the club’s history. City earned a 2-1 victory in Paris last week thanks to goals by Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez, and come into the second leg in the ascendancy knowing PSG must score twice at the Etihad tonight if they are not to rely on penalties to progress.

PSG are set to begin the game without Kylian Mbappe after the French forward picked up a calf injury which forced him to miss their win over Lens on Saturday. City have no fresh injury worries and Guardiola was able to rest plenty of his key stars on the weekend as they closed in on the title with a 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace. Guardiola is aiming to reach his first Champions League final since winning the tournament with Barcelona – and he has not had a better chance than this one.

Follow all the action from the Champions League semi-final second leg between Man City and PSG below.

Foden is played clean through on goal by De Bruyne and can only drill his finish straight at Navas. It looks for a moment like a huge chance has been squandered, but the flag goes up for offside.

Fernandinho, on his 36th birthday, has been as energetic as ever in midfield. He’s doing his defensive duty, too, emphatically heading clear a Di Maria corner.

HALF-TIME: MANCHESTER CITY 1-0 PSG

So far so good for City. Mahrez’s goal has put them 3-1 up on aggregate and on course for a place in the final. It’s been a display of real discipline and defensive organisation, completely unlike their dominant performance in the second half of the first leg. But it’s working well.

Close! Mahrez is picked out on the right and drives to the byline. He drills a low shot towards the near post and Navas saves with his feet. Silva then curls a shot towards the far corner, but a touch from Kimpembe takes the ball just wide.
